D9 | The Pier @Robertson Quay (10 floors)

Topped out, inside work seems well underway.

From Mohammed Sultan Road:




In front are some old docks being converted into an art gallery:

I don't think so.
I think it's an art gallery occupying dock buildings on the riverfront that is extending, actually.

to be honest i tink these days new government buildings seems to be have better aesthetics than the private ones.. simply look at the new schools all around us and to assiciate the hefty amounts ppl pay for a unit for such a design is ...just appalling...very very ordinary design, such a disappointment

Except for the purple roof, it looks okay in a generic sort of way - it fits in with the surroundings rather than stands out - something characteristic of many buildings in our famous skyline.

4th March

The roof is on its way.






Here you can also see the docks being converted in an art centre:


Signboard - it's not part of the Pier project I think.

With a roof like that, they are probably going to be as high as 12 floors when completed!

They're advertising an interesting new feature on the front door security system: it captures a picture of your visitor and automatically fowards that to your phone (by MMS) or laptop (by email). Cool!

I guess its distinguishing visual feature might be the tent-like roof....but it does look generic, adding density to the river edge.
